    Yes, you need a hair more of a drop in your hitch. You want it to be level when loaded and you will probably still have an angle. They make all kinds of different drops. If you get an Andersen the...

    It's a 2002. OP said it looks a couple years old.

    If you are paying a good price I wouldn't feel bad about buying a 2002. Have it inspected by a trailer place/mechanic you trust. I don't know...

    I vote round the corner for sand for dragging. You can bring in whatever you want (poles, fence, gates) for making corners for riding purposes. YMMV.

    I have a three sided compost system. Currently just two in use. You just haven't been to my house. :)

    Most lawn mowers will not be happy doing regular towing. I would not do that. I'm speaking from experience with my riding mower (not zero turn, which also doesn't want to haul poo). I would use an...

    It's not soy beans in MN right now. Those are put in after corn and are no where near ready. So it is a mystery. :)

    Give yourself lots of room to stop.

    Is your trailer a gooseneck? I use a WD hitch and anti-sway on my BP even though I'm rated to tow way more than I do and semis don't really cause any...

    Here it's Tractor Supply, Baumgaars (they still have creosote), a local lumber mill, or a big box store (Menards, Home Depot, Lowes). I don't know if 350 is enough to equal a pallet and get a...

    Although I'm not 100% sure he is black--could be very dark brown?

    I planted a disease resistant elm. Then I fenced around it. Then I realized the mini donkey was working his way under the fence and had debarked my elm. So now I need to dig it up and start over. ...

    You will probably get more pedigree feedback if you post a link to her full pedigree.

    I like arlosmine's suggestions. The big thing is she won't show well now. She could buck. She has the...

    Yes, but don't do it. I'm speaking as someone with combined finances. I bought my first horse before I told him. I was GOING to tell him, but the vet ran into us in the mall and said, "those x-rays...

    Will Do!

    Thank you all for the suggestions. I'm really excited about giving this horse a chance! She was headed to auction (older, dropped back, forward red TB mare with no papers--probably...
  15. Suggestions needed. Jumping saddle for high wither/huge shoulder?

    I am riding a very hard-to-fit throughbred. Her wither is huge, but unlike a lot of horses with a poor topline (she's 17 and been sitting for years) she has a huge round shoulder. A saddle with a V...

    You want to prevent sagging with the knots you choose, imo. I'm glad I have the 10 gauge top and bottom. You are...

    My smallest paddock is 25 or 30 x 25 (I would have to measure). I wanted a small one for layup. It is used by a mini donkey and donkey primarily, but works great when I want to handle a foal. I...

    Same question as SugarCubes. The other thing to consider is sand breaks down after time and loses loft. You do have to replace it eventually.

    You could probably prolong the footing with an...

    I've been looking for a steel trailer for hauling mare/foals and also hauling the 4x4 or mower, etc. Something like a Titain Avalanche with the slants on the rear and butt side, or some kind of...

    I have COATED high tensile and I am very happy with it, except where I didn't use a spinning jenny and need to restring it. I did a lot of research before buying it. I would not use electrobraid. ...

    Honestly, probably around what you paid for it five years ago. I am flabbergasted at what I see used trailers selling for right now. I even see them listed for more than new ones, although I'm...

    Nothing helpful to add except that that is the creepiest, most unsettling thing I have read in awhile. What if they run your horses through the fence? Are you allowed to shoot the stupid thing...
